Just Because You Can...doesn't mean you should (a toddler short)

Watching the children play from the kitchen window while washing dishes yesterday evening, I noticed my little lady adjusting her pants. It looked to me like she was pulling them up, but I didn't see them down...so...

She walked over to her big brother and told him something...something about something under the tree.  He walked over to the tree with her and both of them did that adorable little toddler squat...staring at whatever it was under the tree, they then continued playing until I called them in for dinner.

Dinner conversation was the usual,
"How was your day?"
"What did you do today?"
"What do you want to do after dinner"

"I pooped under the tree today."
Sooooo, pushing our chairs from the table, getting our shoes on quickly, Daddy and I went outside, across the patio, over to the tree.  You could see the flies from quite a distance.  Under the tree, two little lumps. I don't even know how she did this. Seriously. I've squatted in nature. It's hard enough to pee...She's pretty amazing.
Needless to say, we had a nice little talking to about the tree...and pooping...and appropriate places to do so.
